But many of those taking part in the events to mark the massacre spoke of the unity that exists between people on the border."We did a park clean-up on the Haitian side. One of the volunteers couldn't believe we'd come to help his community and I realized that this was a first," said Sady Diaz, one of the organizers.People in both towns will be coming together again later in the month to paint murals along the border, a lasting tribute to those who died.1. Why was the massacre of 1937 known as the Parsley Massacre?The killings became known as "The Parsley Massacre" because soldiers would hold out a piece of parsley and ask the person to say the word for it in Spanish, "Parejil." The Haitians spoke Creole and were not able to properly pronounce the word. Those who could not say the word properly were considered Haitian and were killed, including men, women and children alike.2. Why do you think Haitians were targeted during that time?Due to the differences in culture. 3. How do you think that affected the relationship between Haitians and Dominicans today?It makes the relationship very tense and causes racial divides. Kids of opposing nations bully each other based on differences. It’s a very tense situation. 4. Why is it important to remember the victims today?The victims were unjustly killed and they should be remembered as hereos.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
